Innsbruck, Vienna – The Tyrolean farming chamber today called for a round table after the sensational verdict. After completion of the participants announced four measures: Therefore, there should be comprehensive insurance for alpine farmers. How much it will cost and who will take it is still open. According to LH Günther Platter (ÖVP), path protection should be extended to meadows and pastures.
There must be changes in state law. The personal responsibility of walkers should be put in the foreground. To achieve this, the Almschutzgesetz must be adapted. Details are not fixed yet.
In addition, there should be an information campaign to pinpoint responsibility, but also to positively represent the mountain industry.
Brief announces legal recalculations
In addition, the heads of the Agrarian and Agrarian Chambers voted in favor of the amendment of the General Civil Code. Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) had already announced this cool squeeze in the morning. "The tragic incident should not lead to overall good coexistence between tourists and pasture farming is in danger," Kurz said Wednesday in the press room after the Cabinet.
The trial of the first instance after the fatal incident did not want to comment the chancellor. But it was responsible for creating clear legal regulations. Ministers responsible Josef Moser (Justice) and Elisabeth Köstinger (agrarian, both ÖVP) are now assigned to draft a proposal. Consequently, there must be legal refinements in the General Civil Code and, possibly, state laws to ensure that good coexistence in pastures continues. "This is in everyone's interest in a tourism country," Kurz said.
Representatives from the Chamber of Agriculture, the state government, tourism and the Alpine Association discussed on Wednesday in Innsbruck measures after the trial of the cow.

Terra promises support to affected farmers
The ban on dogs in alpine pastures was rejected at the Round Table in Tyrol. "We do not want to be a land of prohibitions," the governor told the press conference. It could not be that in future fences it is attached everywhere. "Those who manage alpine pastures should not be dumb," said Josef Geisler (ÖVP), the director of agriculture. It is now necessary to create the legal basis for self-responsibility to be strengthened.
Platter, Geisler and Hechenberger pledged full support and compensation to farmers affected by the trial. "Let's not disappoint him," said the country's chief. It is expected, however, that the verdict in the case is still being filmed.
Tirol Greens lead Köstinger on duty
The Tyrolean Greens brought a change in federal legislation to the Tapet, even before the start of the Cow Summit. "Regardless of how the other authorities judge, the peasantry needs legal certainty if it keeps its animals in the pastures of the mountains, respecting its previous duties." Minister of Agriculture Köstinger must therefore specify the legal framework for alpine pasture, said in a press release.
It needs legal clarity, that rights holders have, as Green Agriculture spokesman Georg Kaltschmid: "Proportionality and the sense of proportion here are crucial." Fences in the Alpine area should not be covered.
He refuses to plead isolated by a squeeze in mountain sports. After the tragic incident, it would be a ban on "shortcut" or bans on mountain biking to think about. "We have to strengthen our responsibility rather than react to prohibitions," Kaltschmid said. (TT.com, APA)
